I have been working at Sodexo full-time

Pros

Corporate Staff:
Prides itself on diversity
Flexibility
Good work life balance
Most colleagues are very pleasant & easy to work with
Convenient cafe in the building w/ decent offerings
Nice office setting...Cube life is decent

Cons

Titles & actual responsibilities don't necessarily align
Everything is associated to a budget, I mean everything...system log-ins, training received from another internal department, etc.
Not everyone has the interpersonal skills to be a supervisor, who actually is one.
A hiring freeze would prevent you from moving to a different department, even if the vacancy already exists & you're already on board

Advice to Management

If you hire someone into do specific types of tasks, ensure that is exactly what they work on when they arrive. While team players will perform 'other duties as assigned', ONLY performing those other duties will ensure that you lose good talent quickly.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sodexo has great benefits, including flexible work arrangements. There are lots of career options, especially if you are willing to move to other business units. There is a lot of focus on inclusion and diversity, which makes for a very varied workplace, which I enjoy. Many people at HQ have been with the company for a long time and are very knowledgable subject matter experts.

    Cons

    Sodexo is not the most innovative company, and does not offer the highest compensation.

    I have been working at Sodexo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at an educational institution.

    Cons

    Poor support by corporate services. Required to purchase from large national vendors, "Preferred Vendors". Would rather purchase from local small vendors, with lower pricing. Does Sodexo get a 'rebate' from these 'preferred vendors' with higher prices.
